Details

With Java's switch to a six-month release schedule, the community
needs to step up its game to stay up to date. Instead of having a year
or more to prepare for a new release, it's a mere three months - we
need to be better informed about what's going on to see changes coming
before they're out.

This talk:

* explains the details behind the new schedule and how to stay up to date
* presents Java 9, 10, and 11 language features like `var`
* shows the future of Java, brought by projects like Valhalla, Amber,
and others
* looks at features of upcoming releases like pattern matching and
value types

Afterward, you will not only know about the immediate future but also
how to stay up to date without much effort.
